Pune, 05-June-2017:
The Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS), Pune and AXA Business services collaborated in spreading joy to the kids and women from the slums of Pune by donating useful study material, books, toys and used shoes and clothes. More than 375 women and kids had gathered to share the joy in the Don Bosco Koregaon Park hall.

Fr Rolvin D’Mello (Executive Director – DBDS)) welcomed the gathering; he assured the continual support of DBDS for the empowerment of the underprivileged people. Fr Ivan D’Souza (Rector of Don Bosco - Pune) motivated the kids to “Run, Jump, Play but don’t Sin” through the motto of Don Bosco himself.

Later during the event Mr Mahesh Kumar (Project Manager – DBDS) gave a brief about the women empowerment project that is being operated from Pune in joint collaboration with Manos Unidas, Spain. Mr. Anup (AXA Staff) explained about the CSR Week and the various social initiatives carried out for the benefit of the underprivileged during this week.

The event ended with a vote of thanks by Mrs Ranjana (Coordinator - DBDS) and with a variety of sumptuous snacks served for all. The kids and women went back home filled with the joy and the pledge to spread joy to others.
